Seriously, you should give it a shot someday. Especially if you have 4 buddies to play with. The campaign is entertaining, the multiplayer is balanced and satisfying (minus the fact that most maps have the exact same shape), and horde mode is better than ever if you’re down with cooperative wave defense. It runs extremely well on PC, they make updates to balance and feature requests, and all DLC maps for competitive multiplayer are free.
Ignore BF1, ignore COD IW, and buy Gears 4.
